ALBANY, GA (WALB) -To stop more speeders, the Dougherty County Police Department hopes to renew its H.E.A.T (Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic) grant from the state for a fifth year.

The grant helps pay for a two-person, two-car team that focuses on stopping speeders,  impaired drivers, and people not wearing seat belts. H.E.A.T officers say their work makes roads less deadly.

"It will help keep us on the road so we can better serve the fine citizens of Dougherty County to help decrease vehicle crashes, fatalities on the roadway, decrease D.U.I's and increase seat belts," said Cpl. Robert Richard with Dougherty County H.E.A.T.

The police department is waiting to hear back from the Governor's office of Highway Safety to see if it's approved to operate H.E.A.T another year.
